On Sorta Awesome, we not only share all of the good stuff of life together, we also talk to each other about the tough topics, too. Today, the Sorta Awesome Stories series continues when Meg talks to Super Star Awesome Jill Goolsby about an issue that affects one out of four women: intimate partner violence. Jill shares her story of losing a friend to domestic violence and helps us know how we can push through the discomfort of awkward conversations to help each other recognize and respond to warning signs of violence and abuse. This episode is a must-listen and will empower you to help make a difference that could potentially save a life.

All of that plus some easy summertime treats in Awesome of the Week!
